Kaanapali is a popular resort town in West Maui that is home to many hotels, beaches, restaurants and shops, including RideSmart Maui! Our new location makes it easy to start exploring as soon as you pick up your e-bike. Whether you’re looking for a romantic week with your partner, or a family fun day with the kids, we offer a variety of e-bike types including tandem, cargo and all-terrain e-bikes to help you make the most out of your time in Kaanapali. Here are a few of our favorite local recommendations:
Visiting Maui without a car is a great way to save money on your vacation, reduce your carbon footprint and avoid potential stresses such as traffic jams, road closures and parking shortages. Many travelers choose to navigate the island using a combination of the transit modes Maui has to offer including the Bus, the trolley, and by bike!
With rental car prices recently exceeding $1000 per day, now is a better time than ever to go car-less during your trip to paradise.
Cycling is one of the best low-impact cardiovascular workouts for any skill or fitness level. You may have heard the myth that using e-bikes is “cheating” and does not provide a rider with the same physical health benefits as standard bicycles. We are here to debunk that misconception and prove that you can still burn sufficient calories and break a sweat while on a bike with a motor.
In a perfectly sustainable world, vehicles that require gasoline for fuel would be extinct. Electric bikes and vehicles would transport us from point Lahaina to Kaanapali, and in between, we would consider how we have reduced our individual carbon footprint significantly by commuting on our electric bike. Or at the very least, we would not be worrying as much about the negative effects of climate change.
Remember when you were a kid, and the only way to get to your friend’s house was on your trusty 10-speed bike? Many of us relied on our bicycles as a form of transportation long before we got a license to drive. In our childhood, bikes weren’t just the vehicle that transported us to our next adventure… Riding itself was the adventure! And most of us were never motivated to get outside for a bike ride because we needed to burn some calories. Our reasons for riding were much simpler: We just wanted something fun to do on a Saturday!
Here at RideSmart Maui, we’re passionate about e-bicycles because they offer the best of both worlds. They’re better for the environment than a car, while also eliminating most of the common disadvantages to cycling including hilly terrain, longer journeys. and high winds. Whether your intention is recreational use, exercise or transportation, the opportunities are endless and we guarantee you’ll find a time and a place to utilize an ebike while residing in or visiting Kihei, Lahaina, and the many other beautiful places on Maui. Participating in one of our fun, self-guided tours is the best way to learn about their benefits.
